The recently released Amazon Prime Original, Breathe – created by Abundantia Entertainment, launched on January 26th, 2018, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. In an unprecedented move, Breathe launched as a trilingual 8-episode series, simultaneously in 200+ countries and territories worldwide!

The series, which premiered in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, has received rave reviews all over! Many have called this psychological thriller a game-changer for Indian content going global in the digital world and a show that has raised the bar for Indian content. 

Directed by Mayank Sharma and starring R. Madhavan, Amit Sadh and Sapna Pabbi in lead roles, Breathe, is a gritty drama that explores the lives of ordinary men faced with extraordinary circumstances. 

Kabir Sawant (Amit Sadh), a brilliant but unconventional officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch, puts the pieces together of seemingly unconnected deaths of organ donors that lead to an unlikely suspect - the affable Danny Mascarenhas (R. Madhavan). As Danny faces the difficult choice between morality and the slim possibility of saving his dying son’s life, Kabir will not stop till he cracks the case and delivers justice.

Danny Mascarenhas is the single parent to six-year-old Josh, who suffers from lung failure (Cystic Fibrosis), a congenital life-threatening disease, and is in dire need of a lung transplant. A God-fearing family man, his life revolves around his son, his widowed mother and the soccer academy that he runs. Breathe captures Danny’s struggle to save the life of his son, as he tries to create his own fate, to alter his son’s destiny.

Will the relentless cop catch the killer? Will Danny be able to save his son? What drives Kabir? Who will the next victim be? All these questions and more will be answered through the course of this gripping, emotional and psychological thriller. The difference between a man becoming a ‘Protector’ or ‘Predator’ is simply what’s at stake.

Audiences, who streamed the first four episodes on release day, were able to watch a new episode every Friday, owing to its episodic release format. The series finale aired on the 23rd of February and the show is now available for viewers to watch, at one go on Amazon Prime Video.
